Blog note: And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11). Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. This verse from Luke is one of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor pains that occur in greater severity, frequency, size and duration prior to giving birth. End of note.

More than 1,000 people have been diagnosed with the measles, the Health Ministry announced on Sunday, as officials cautioned people to take efforts to combat the disease. A teacher in Ashdod was reported as infectious on Sunday, prompting the school to recommend a second dose of measles vaccines to pupils. The Health Ministry will vaccinate residents in Jerusalem, Beit Shemesh and Betar Illit as a result in the uptick of measles cases.
The ministry said on Sunday that 1,334 measles patients were diagnosed across the country. Sixty-five to roughly 100 of these patients were given the first round of vaccination and still got sick, the ministry said. In the upcoming weeks, intense vaccination efforts will be offered in the three cities to serve those who have not yet been inoculated. Ambulances will tour neighborhoods to offer vaccines to residents. Unvaccinated people will not be allowed to enter various hospital sections and may possibly be barred from schools.
Last week, an 18-month old baby in Jerusalem succumbed to the measles, prompting a renewed fear of the disease.
